Why is it important?

"Information Architecture" is really important. Think if you build your house without a project. There are many chances that you get something different of what you think and want.


Our perspective is ontological, and thus well-founded in good philosophical theory. It is not what I want to call "Information Architecture" but what it really is, it metaphysical parlance. We also checked our view against the best Information Science references of the last 20 years or so.
